Is Ramen Vegan?

Whether you’re tucking into a warming bowl of ramen at home, or you’re eating out and see it on the menu, you may be wondering — is it vegan?


Ramen is a traditional Japanese noodle soup. It generally contains wheat noodles, a hearty broth topped with fresh and steamed vegetables, like spring onions and bok choy plus some kind of grilled filling, like tofu, tempeh or meat, often with a boiled egg. The broth is usually flavoured with soy, miso, ginger and chilli. 

Is ramen vegan? 

Traditionally no, ramen isn’t usually vegan as the broth is commonly made from meat or fish, as well as other meat ingredients and an egg. However, there are plenty of delicious vegan ramen recipes and options in restaurants across the UK.
